Royal Geographical Society in Settle

The Royal Geographical Society (RGS) produces a series of geographically-themed walks around the UK called ‘Discovering Britain’. The aim is to encourage people to explore Britain’s diverse landscapes. All these walks are available in written or audio versions on a website. They are free, self-guided and hopefully fun.

One of the latest walks is in Settle, exploring the historic town and surrounding countryside of the Craven Fault. The walk was created by local historian Tony Stephens and tells the story of Settle’s geographical development over the centuries. Please feel free to have a look:

The 6 mile circular route takes in Langcliffe, Victoria Cave and Attermire Scar and a very detailed (44 page) booklet can be downloaded from the site using the link above.  The booklet covers the landscape, geography, history and many other interesting facts about the area.
